Great World of Sound is a 2007 comedy film directed by Craig Zobel. Zobel won Breakthrough Director at the Gotham Awards and the film also won the Grand Jury Award at the Atlanta Film Festival.[1]

Plot[edit]

The film stars Pat Healy and Kene Holliday as Martin and Clarence, two men who get involved in a record industry talent scouting scheme commonly known as song sharking. In the film, real people performed in the audition scenes without knowing it was actually a film shoot. The interactions between the lead actors and the unsuspecting musicians were recorded with hidden cameras. This was integrated into the final product, resulting in a blend of fact and fiction.[2]
